College sailing - watch the ICSA site for up-to-date race results for many of our sailors.

Pewaukee hosts the E Blue Chip starting today. Too windy on Friday to sail. Reports of wind gusts to 37mph kept the fleet on shore. Mystery Guest Bora Gulari took an A boat for a test drive but better minds prevailed and the boat coasted  home. "Calling this stupid is a disservice to stupid people" --- quote unknown but spoken today.


MC Blue Chip in Michigan this weekend.

UW to Host 420 Clinic



Turn your old sails into eyecatching bags

Stelluca Needs Your Leftovers

Old Sails?  Exchange them for a credit at Stelluca Upcycled Bags!


Before you store your old sails that you'll never use again for one more season, contact Stelluca.  Stelluca ( cuts up old sails and other leftover materials to make unique backpacks, and duffle, messenger, wine and sea bags.  You may have seen the Stelluca trophies at the Opti Midwest Champs Regatta, the Melges 17 Nationals, or the volunteer gifts at the Beulah Quads.


If you are in the Pewaukee area this weekend, you can drop them off at the Pewaukee Yacht Club E Blue Chip.  Contact Melissa at 262 434 0264 or to arrange a time to meet or have the sails picked up from your house.  We take all sails, no matter the condition and give you a store credit in return.
